Hi All,

Been a while since I managed any imaging at all.  Nice clear skies on Monday night allowed the following capture of NGC 2903 in Leo.  One of my fav galaxies, but not one I've had much luck with before;

That's a beauty Dave, congrats!. Phenomenal structure through the entire galaxy with no burn out, not any easy feat at all. Just look at those ancient red stars on the spiral arms - gorgeous.
